Prayer can be especially difficult when we are ill, and the comfort and assurance of faith may seem like just a faint memory. In Times of Illness offers a simple way to pray in difficult times, a way to keep our balance when we are under duress. Chapters focus on issues and emotions that trouble those who are ill: pain, bad news, fear, anger, isolation, facing death, seeking forgiveness, gratefulness, and trust. Whether you are ill or want to share the gift and power of prayer with someone who is suffering, In Times of Illness offers a hopeful blend of scriptural, classic, and contemporary prayers and reflections.
